Fifty & Fabulous!

The start of every year you like to start fresh and organized but you loose your memento, well this year I need to be organized so it is going to be my mission. There will be five of us and one more on the way in April. With living in each others pockets we will have to have house rules, weekly menus, schedules, rosters and so much more. My mission is huge the only thing that might put a spanner in the works is that I'm starting menopause! but I am a very patient person, considerate, kind, compassionate, forgiving, understanding, a good listener and I always forgive so it should be fine, fingers cross.   
This was the bathroom which had a shower, toilet and laundry tub and was attached to the kitchen. When our house burnt down we were given three demountable which we joined together live in and the kitchen one was also the bathroom. We added two bedrooms, a new bathroom and a hall way plus laundry. So we are now pulling out the old bathroom to make the kitchen larger.
Just outside my kitchen window is the sheep and goat yards and occasionally the horse yard.

For my starting fresh for the year I finally redeemed my gift voucher I received for my birthday at Bella Spa. I had a remedial massage, deep sea mineral facial, a deluxe pedicure and my eyebrows wax and tinted, talk about being 50 and fabulous, bring on 2013 :)

Goodbye 2012 and Hello 2013

Good bye 2012 and Hello 2013, these are some pictures of the last 12 to 18mths of my life. Today we decided to rearrange the kitchen in our little cottage to make more bench space and food storage, with one of my daughters coming back home along with her partner and my grandson life is going to be very cosy until we finish building our new house. Did I mention both of my daughters are expecting, one in February and the other in April, this will make me grandma to six beautiful grandchildren. I will post pics of our small kitchen renovation tomorrow.
